Hi i have a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011),

when i try to switch it on

1: the sleep light blinks once
2: the cpu fan starts and stops in 5 seconds
3: no screen
4: no boot up
5: no startup chime

when i connect it to the charger

1: the sleep light blinks after small intervals
2: the cpu fan starts and stops in 5 seconds and at regular intervals
3: no screen
4: no boot up
5: no startup chime

what do i do about it? any suggestions i should try on, actually there is no apple care anywhere near, its about 650 kms away.

I have uploaded it on youtube : you can see it here but i dont know if i should put up my link.

That's your answer. If you suspect (or know) that this computer is water damaged...then that's the problem.

How was it water damaged? Was the water quickly removed? How long since it was water damaged? Did you instantly remove all power and battery when the water hit?

Best suggestion? Sell it for parts on eBay and such and when you buy another laptop keep all fluids well and truly away.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
